need specs on a sub woofer

Hey, I can't find this sub on the internet. Could someone find the specs on it for me? I have amp that runs 220 watts rms @ 4 ohms. Would that be to much for it?

It's a 12" kenwood tornado. It says 600 watts on the back

Already have it sitting in my garage. It was my bro's I got it for free. It sounds OK in a box made for a 12w3. And I already have the amp so i was wondering if it was to much for the sub.

I couldn't find discontinued subs on kenwoods site and couldn't find it on google. My Pioneer slim sub is 250rms but 1000 max so...

But none of this really helps haha

the amp you have will push it, but dont over do it. keep the bass level low and go from there..how many chanels is the amp if it is one channel just connect it normall. - to - and + to +. but if its more than one channel do not bridge it. first do one channel if you see that that isnt pushing it then bridge it. but keep the bass level low.. anywase if you burn the sub you cant say you wasted your money on a sub.......

Oh, it's 200rms bridged an 65 x2 not lol. My sub in my ranger can handle 50watts rms more...hmm...

But yes, the tornado would go into the 97 ranger extended cab if I got it.

200watts rms on the amp, 180 for the sub. 20watts rms over shouldn't hurt should it?
